Team Summers turn up heat and disintegrate the competition on Lake Buchanan!!

LAKE: Buchanan
DATE: June 2nd, 2012
TIME: 6:00am – 3:00pm
WEIGH IN: Burnet County Ramp

It is not often that the first place team more than doubles the rest of the field, but on Lake Buchanan that’s exactly what Glenda and Allen Summers did. To illustrate the magnitude by which they won, you could add up the weights for second and third place and that still would fall several pounds short of the enormous 20.57 pound limit of bass that Allen and Glenda Summers wow’ed the rest of the field with. Their bag of fish was anchored by a monumental 10.43 pound largemouth caught by Allen. This is not only the big bass of the tournament, but is also the new big bass of the year and is now Allen’s new personal best fish ever. I overheard him comment, “I finally broke into the double digits.”   The couple reported that Glenda also had one on earlier in the day that may have been even larger than Allen’s fish but her line broke as the monster made a last run for freedom. Glenda still managed to bring in a beautiful 4.6 pounder that took woman’s big bass honors. I know I speak for everyone in the club when I say great job and congratulations, we bow before you on this day.

Unfortunately that’s just about the only highlight of the Lake Buchanan tournament. Most teams struggled to catch keeper sized bass. Only one other team managed to bring in a limit of bass, and consequently it was good enough for second place. Robert Brown and his guest had 8.09 pounds when the scales settled. Rounding out the top three was Jesse Sanchez and his guest Jeff Huebel ,(now a club member) with three fish for 7.80 pounds. Everyone else pretty much sucked it up big time! But as always we will be back on the water next month, determined as ever, for our first night time tournament of the 2012 season on the famed Lake Austin. You never know how things will shake out on that lake. With multiple double-digit fish caught out there this season thus far, Allen may want to put some voodoo on his fellow club members if he wants to retain the big bass of the year position! Good luck to everyone. Be safe and see ya out there.
